‘Game Of Thrones’ Heroin: Facts About Heroin That’s 50 Times Deadlier

A new variant of heroin – dubbed the Game of Thrones heroin, with more potency than the usual drug – has been discovered in New Hampshire and Vermont.

On Friday, a 32-year-old man who overdosed on the narcotic had to be revived by New Hampshire officers.

According to Lebanon Police Chief Richard Mello, the police “recovered some packets of heroin at the scene,” adding that they “were able to make arrests” in the connection with the drug, as reported by WCVB.

Game of Thrones heroin could contain either heroin or fentanyl, or a combination of both, according to Lebanon police. Vermont Health Commissioner Harry Chen said the drug could be laced with fentanyl. “Instead of taking one dose, you’re taking 50 doses. And that’s what problematic in terms of overdosing people and killing people,” Chen said. “The cycle has to end. But unfortunately, there’s no safe way to do it.”

“If you continue to use street drugs, or know someone who does, we urge you to be aware of the current danger out there,” Chen said, as reported by the New York Daily News.

Richardson is facing two counts of sale of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute and possession of a narcotic drug. He is held on $20,000 bail. His customer was held on a $5,000 bail.

Further testing will be conducted to determine whether the narcotic found in Vermont matches with the one in Lebanon.
